Gill Becque MBACP
Manor House GP Surgery
My name is Gill Becque and I practise in the Glossop area. I really love my work as a counsellor, and feel it is a great privelege to be invited into people's lives when life isn't working for them. I offer a safe space, where thoughts, feelings and behaviour can be explored. I offer acceptance and non-judgment with the aim of empowering people to make changes in their life that will be helpfful and healthy for them.
I work privately from home Monday to Friday, mostly in the daytime, though evening sessions are also possible. I also have 5 sessions a week at Manor House GP practice in Glossop and Hadfield.
My approach is person-centred which means that I work with what each person brings, and I tend to work intuitively with each person and enjoy finding ways of exploring with them the issues that arise. I don’t have my own agenda. I also work with a number of other therapeutic styles when it feels appropriate for the client, as I have carried on developing my training over the last 12 years.
I aim to offer a safe space, where clients can explore their thoughts, feelings and behaviour. I offer acceptance and non-judgment; my aim is to help clients find a way forward in difficult times.
I am creative and have a love of music, sound and poetry, which I often use as a therapist in 1-1 sessions and workshops.
